A complete protein, Maca provides 19 amino acids, 4 different alkaloids, 20 different fatty acids, an abundance of calcium and an assortment of vitamins including C, E, B1 (thiamine) and B2 (riboflavin).
Traditionally integrated in the nutrition of natives, the Maca root has evolved into a modern day "superfood". Maca has a rich malty flavour that combines well with cacao, another "superfood".
The "superfood of the Andes", Maca is popular amongst the indigenous population of the Peruvian Andes. Cultivated in spring, Maca is a small root vegetable from the maca plant grown at altitudes over 3500 metres.
Raw Maca roots are cultivated on a 5 year rotational method without the use of pesticides. Our maca is a mixture of 4 different roots: 25% red, yellow, purple and black offering a unique nutritional profile. Hand selected for the best quality, the Maca root is cleaned in natural water. Once dried the Maca root is ground into a fine powder and packaged.
Organic Maca powder is certified organic by the Soil Association under the code GB-ORG-05.
